Classic PC Games

Take a step back in time and revisit your favorite DOS and Windows games. The files available in this collection consist primarily of PC demos, freeware, and shareware. These files are the original releases which will require intermediate to advanced knowledge to install and run on modern operating systems. If you would rather simply try some classic MS-DOS games inside your browser you may wish to try the online MS-DOS Software Library. New games are added to this collection on a weekly basis.

Specific news regarding major updates can be found on our website Demu.

If you are the copyright holder of a classic computer game and would like the full version of your work to appear in the archive please e-mail me at swizzle@demu.org. I'm also more than happy to answer questions and fill requests.

Compatibility Information
The majority of these games will not run correctly on modern operating systems. For DOS titles you will need to use DOSBox. You can find an easy to follow DOSBox tutorial here.

Most Windows titles will need to be run through Windows Virtual PC under the appropriate version of Windows for full functionality. Some titles may *mostly* work by simply configuring them to use a compatibility mode.

If you are running Linux, BSD, Solaris or Mac OS X, Wine will run most of the older Windows based software (and DOSBox).

Treasure Hunter Man is an action platformer similar in look and gameplay to other Bernie's games like A Game with a Kitty and Stargirl & the Thief from the Exploded Moon. It tells the story of a kid named Marvin who one day falls from the sky onto Kruz Island to seek its treasures. Bernie considers THM unfinished beta version, but he ceased working on it.

Lean back and listen to our good old friend Kitty (you might know him from "A Game with a Kitty" and "AGwaK 2: Darkside Adventures") who tells you the story of Stargirl, her stolen Starscooter and her quest to get it back... "Stargirl and the Thief from the Exploded Moon" is a very nice platform game in the tradition of "Super Mario 2". It has cute graphics, an atmospheric soundtrack and there are plenty of secrets, hidden items and occasional boss...

"Escaping from a prison is never easy. But doing it with a correctional officer's consent is even harder. Officer Matthew Holmstett is a walking, talking regulation book and has his own set of ideals. Getting him to do what you want won't be an easy task. Don't overdo it, or you may find yourself handcuffed to a radiator very fast. Nobody trusts someone convicted for murder that easily after all..." (Bernie) This might be the right AGS game when you are looking for a...

After the adventures in "A Game with a Kitty" (which you can find on CWF as well) the hero kitty became arch-chancellor of the imp king. But that doesn't mean the end of his adventures. As soon as he is on vacation for the first time, the evil Captain Horatio steals the crown of the princess and tries to overthrow the king to gain the power himself. So it's up to the kitty to get things right again and there'll be a long and dangerous quest before there might be a happy end......

"A game with a Kitty" is a nice little platform game that was developed by Bernie (his other adventure game, "Cedric and the Revolution" can be found on CWF as well) in just two weeks. It is an oldschool platformer in the tradition of the "Mario" games. You play a little kitty hero who has to investigate a mysterious tower that suddenly appeared near his village. Enemies can be destroyed by jumping on them, new skills can be gained by collecting stars. The game has...

Cedric is an elf, who is trying to gather enough people for a demonstration against the king and his high taxes. He is not very tall but, by some weird mistake of nature, has room for a HUGE ego. The game won awards at the link page, for best puzzle of 2005 and best short game of 2005. It is truly worth a look, and you won't regret playing it. The feel of the game is very Monkey Island-ish, and if that won't get you to play the game, then something is seriously wrong with you.
